. on the social issues front, abortion rights groups are pledging to challenge the most restrictive abortion law just passed in arc sauce. and in michigan, a judge says he won't rule on whether that state's ban on same-sex marriage is constitutional until he seeing what the supreme court does on two pending cases. all of it begging the question, is it still really all about the economy as we head into 2014? joining me from washington, democratic strategist and president of american bridge 21st century, and msnbc contributor and former adviser to president bush robert traynham. good to see both of you. so rodle, in a lot of individual races could anything and everything from abortion to gale marriage, to some of these issues actually make a difference in individual races? >> well, listen, i think as of right now still still going to be the economy, but what we found through time is that the better the economy gets, the most likely that some of these social issues that people are actually willing to look at these social issues as factors of who they're going to vote for. >> robert, if we learned o
of racial equality. of course, achieving racial equality required applications of laws, metrics and approaches that are race conscious. universities committed to diverse student bodies need to consider the ethnicity of their applicants and school districts committed to integration need to monitor and track the racial makeup of their student body. the roberts' court conservative justices have no decent from this. roberts proclaimed he found the intense involve innocent in achieving that an icky business. it is a sordid business. this divvying us up by race. roberts with the factual declaration the way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race. that sentence is a perfect distillation of the jurisprudence on race with the adolescent soft history. it's a short distance from that reasoning to asking why there isn't a white history month? roberts' history of color blindness requires the courts to simply ignore or forget the actual history of institutions and laws and traditions and cultures. the lived experience of human beings embedded
and superintendent with permission from the state board and state superintendent to ask for a waiver from state laws for innovative programs. we called it an innovation law or the flex law. its passed both chambers. and went to conference committee and at the conference committee level, a nine page bill became a 28 page bill and it still had the flex components, but then this whole new concept of a tuition tax credit program was added. >> i've heard you call this an anti-public education bill. but as i understand it and please correct me if i'm wrong, it's not just to send them to another private school. they could send them to another successful public school district, could they not? >> that is an option. i don't think i've used that term. i think that that is one of the criticisms of the bill. and let me tell you, we in the education community understand that we need to address the problem of low performing schools. and there were several other bills pending that would have addressed that. so we have problems with how this legislation was enacted, buts also we're not sure it's going to produce th
we don't have a federal law that bans illegal gun trafficking. background pass should pass. shame on the congress if we can't get behind a law that has support from 90% of the american people and 80% of gun owners. 80% of gun owners think that everybody who buys a gun in this country should go through a basic criminal background check, so i think ultimately republicans will not be able to vote against that. the question is, can we pass a ban on the high-capacity magazines. a survey came out that said the majority of gun owners in our state support getting these 20, 30, 100-round magazines off the streets. i think that while all the attention has been on assault weapon ban, which is hard to pass, we can probably get a ban on high-capacity magazines through, and frankly to the parents in newtown, that would make a bigger difference in a lot of ways than the assault weapons badge. >>> chris murphy, thanks for your time today. i appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> here's a quick look. john kerry is on hi way back to the u.s. after his first trip abroad. kerry visited nine countries in 11

it couldn't be done! today president obama signed into law the reauthorization of the violence against women act. finally. it took a long time, but it finally got done. and it got done in the end mostly because republican leaders in the house decided to get out of the way. look, when it passed in the house, it got more democratic votes than republican votes. that is usually not how it works. usually the party in control in the house won't allow something to come up for a vote unless their own side is for it. but in this case republican leaders in the house decided to get out of the way. they folded. and as a result we got a rare signing ceremony today in washington. i almost feel like i will jinx it if i point it out, but things are actually sort of starting to happen in washington. and they are happening, i think, to the extent that things can get done around the republican leadership in washington. look at this. this very short piece of tape. but watch carefully. >> that is him. >> that was him. >> it was? >> yeah. >> was that him? yeah, it was. really? was that him? yeah. him. the him in
